We’re still on this ongoing journey to a cleaner, more healthy lifestyle and one of my biggest endeavors has been to get rid of the host of cleaning products we’ve had in our home that have some really nasty chemicals in them (seriously, if it makes your eyes burn when using it, it’s probably not [...]

Now that I have that out of the way – today’s topic is something that I never expected to be so near and dear [...]
We began cleaning up our lifestyle a few years ago. We felt that we could be better stewards of the environment, bodies and resources God has given us. We’ve made quite a few changes over the last couple of years (including switching to cloth diapers, I’ve given up shampoo, we’ve been planting a garden and [...]
In case you missed it, here is my post on what our cloth diaper stash is like.
I sometimes get asked by people who don’t cloth diaper about my washing routine and when I explain it, they realize that it’s not nearly as yucky as one would think. So, I thought I’d tell you about [...]

I did it! I’ve accomplished going shampoo-free!! If you don’t remember my first attempt, here is my fail post.

* In the back, on the far left and just left of center (the tallest plants) are all tomatoes. This year I started them [...]
Here is a photo of what my garden looked like 2 days ago:
First row (starting in the back):* 3 tomato plants* 2 pumpkin (don’t know what kind b/c Eli planted these in a cup at preschool and they actually came up so I transplanted them) – however one of them already has a bloom on [...]
I thought I would just give a little run down of how we are doing our part to be good stewards of what God has given us.
Here are some things we do:* Cloth diaper Rachael (about 90% of the time) and use cloth wipes, as well* Mama cloth (if you don’t know and really want [...]
I realized that I never gave you the gist of what my hair type is. My hair is moderately thick, medium brown (all natural), approximately 6 inches below my shoulders, semi-curly, but also easily straightened, and in DIRE need of a trim. Even before I stopped using shampoo, I was having to flat iron it [...]
